“I was able to see firsthand what cancer does to someone and to a family…”


“Breast cancer affected my life by taking my mom away. I don’t like talking about my mom’s passing because it hurts so much, but I am a big advocate for breast cancer awareness so that others will not suffer like my mom did.”


“I regret putting my mom in the hospice house. I will never forget the look she gave me when the ambulance came to take her and she asked me straight forward if I thought this was the best thing for her. When I looked back at her I honestly believed with all of my heart that it was, and that she would be coming back home with me in a few days. But I think deep down inside I knew that when she left that day she would never see our home or our dog every again.”




“When my mom was in her last few weeks before she passed away from breast cancer I realized that it didn’t matter what you looked like or where you are from, but who you had become up to that point. Did you live your life to the fullest, and do you have any kind of regrets? Diseases and death does not care how much money you have or what you look like. Anyone can get sick and everyone leaves this world one way or another.”




“I was a caregiver by the time I was 27 and was able to see firsthand what cancer does to someone and to a family. I wish I could go back in time and spend more time with my mom and tell her how wonderful she was and how much of an amazing mom she was. Also I have so many questions that I still need to ask and I wish I could just go back and ask her.”
